instituted romney care which mandated every person in massachusetts buy health care. which mandated an insurance policy that everyone has to have to get four choices. which mandated fines if you didn't buy insurance. which taxed businesses. and of course used your taxpayer dollars through medicaid to pay for half of it. it was the model that barack obama used. how do we know that? just look at the two bills and listen to president obama. he said he listened and watched what went on in massachusetts. with the romney kennedy health care bill. and, yes, ted kennedy when mitt romney signed that bill was standing right behind him applauding. now, any time you have ted kennedy standing behind you applauding something, you know this is not a freedom bill.

that. >> maybe with mitt romney's win in february is a parallel to what john mccain faced in early march. two months after hillary clinton winning -- losing the nomination, john mccain won his nomination "having dodged a bullet after bullet, mccain clinched his party's nomination on march 4, concluding one of the gleatest political victories in history." why such a lag between clinton's nomination and determining the nominee late in the summer? >> that is an excellent question. it goes to the heart of this election with sarah palin. president mccain had been around presidential politics and he enjoyed the opportunity to go through the rituals that the party nominee gets to go through. one of which is hiring someone or retaining someone in this space, a respected washington lawyer, to go through and begin a process of studying the prospect of potential candidates. given it was a mccain operation which would be likely to have loose lips and a lot of leaking. this was kept re relatively confidential in real-time. the day we decided to do this show was the day john mccain went on imus'

level. governor romney advocated to president obama the federal government adopt massachusetts romney-care. that is bad enough. he has gone out during the time obamacare was being proposed, and he encouraged president obama to adopt an individual mandate, to adopt romney-care for the model on the federal level. throughout the course of this campaign, he has maintained that he did not do that. there is one thing to make a mistake. there is another thing to go out and deliberately misrepresent to the people of this country what your position is. i can tell you, we need someone who the american public can trust. i will go out there and tell you what i believe all the time.
